Cheri Monastery Hike

Thimphu, Bhutan

Embark on a 2 -3 hour hike to Cheri Monastery.

The trail starts by crossing a lovely wooden bridge that spans the Wangchu River. This monastery was built by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal in 1620; a silver chorten inside the monastery holds the ashes of Shabdrung's father. Being the place where the Shabdrung spent many years in meditation, Cheri today has numerous hermitages and small temples located on its slopes, commanding spectacular views.
